People are saying  

  • Jerliyah

    You can reserve certain areas and mini-rooms (3 on the back wall that include a desk, 2 chairs, and monitor – it’s very small so it would be best for private space, a 2-person meeting, or virtual meetings)

  • Get some food it good

  • I’m told that this place re-arranges its furniture regularly, and what I’m seeing today looks different than photos above.
    Also, I couldn’t get my work VPN to connect here. The network was also blocking outbound pings (a nerdy way of testing internet connections), so this is more locked down than your typical coffee shop or Starbucks that is set up for distance workers. That issue will make me second guess this one.

      Update: I’ve worked here again and successfully connected VPN.
